- Spread out the Dialoogle cards on the floor.
- Ask the participants to pair up and find two cards each. One should illustrate an experience from a project that was particularly good. Which part of the picture describes the good experience? The other card should show something that you or your co-workers did differently at that time.
- Ask the participants to explain to one another why they have chosen their picture cards and elaborate on the answer.
- Find 1-3 common denominators in the presentations.
- Ask the participants to form a new pair, repeat their presentations and find common features. Remember these features! Repeat this process with new pairs for as long as you want.
- Afterwards, ask the participants to gather and write the common features on a blackboard. If you can think of a relevant feature that nobody has mentioned, you can add it to the blackboard.
- Ask 1-3 participants to make a to-do list of the common features: What are the essential features? What are the most important factors for making a project successful? This list can be used at the beginning of future projects.
In small groups of 2-3 persons, you can ask the participants to begin by doing the exercise by themselves. It is a good idea to give plenty of time for the presentations and discussions of ideas. This will make the common features stand out for the participants.
